This week I deliver to you, Jenn Lamb of Unurth. Jenn creates the most fabulous ceramic mugs, planters, jewelry and more! Every handmade piece is a beautiful work of art. Jenn is incredibly talented and delightfully sweet to work with. You are destined to enjoy all experiences with her and her work. Check out her story!
Q: Tell me about Unurth and how you got started?
Unurth started for a couple of reasons: I believe the things we surround ourselves with effect us. Unurth is an effort to create objects that slow us down. To bring inside the wonder + magic that inspires us from the outdoors The other part is while finishing my degree at Otis College in product design, I took a ceramics class. I completely fell in love and saw the medium as a way to bridge my love of art + nature + design.
It was all very organic! I started small and have been growing slowly and steadily; building my studio and taking on more. 2015 is going to be a big year!
Q: What is your favorite aspect about being a small business owner?
Creating something of my own is very important to me! My favorite parts are the flexibility, working with and meeting so many incredible people, and at the same time cultivating + practicing the steady drive it takes to reach goals.
Q: What should a customer expect from Unurth when making a purchase?
A huge thank you and a new beautiful piece for their home + daily rituals to enjoy for days to come. One customer declared one piece as "happiness in a mug!".
Q. What are some of your best selling products?
The mugs and planters. I try out new things all the time and some are loved! But those two are by far the favorites.
I love seeing the planters come together with the right succulents. It's magic!
"happiness in a mug!"
Q: Who or what has been the biggest inspiration for you?
Nature. Walks in the forest, beach combing, the moments when you feel really close to the earth and all the details that come forward when you slow down. I try to bring this through in my work with my colors, forms, and textures.
Q.:Do you have any special events or offers coming up?
I am very excited for the holiday shows in L.A. If you are in the area, stop by Unique LA + Renegade LA for one of a kind pieces not available online. Keep an eye on my instagram for a special giveaway coming up! (@unurthwonder)
